Snowdudes

Hi!  I thought I was done making Christmas cards, but I need a couple more and this is one of them.


I have wanted this Paper Smooches stamp set since it first came out and it finally came to live with me :)  I wanted to make a card straight away and made this one for the die-crazy challenge at Simon Says Stamp, the Christmas challenge at Color Throwdown and the Merry Christmas challenge at Sweet Stampin' Challenge.

I stamped, colored and die-cut the snowdudes and then painted the colored parts with Wink of Stella.  For the background, I die-cut a Surf Blue panel with Blueprints 15 and then stamped the snowflakes from the set with Unicorn White ink.  I then die-cut the Stitched Mountain Range and popped it up on foam tape over the Surf Blue panel.The tall and skinny snowman was adhered directly to the mountain range.  The snowy curved panel was die-cut and popped up on foam tape after being lightly sponged with Tumbled Glass ink.  The short and not-so-skinny snowman was glued to the curved panel and the top part had some foam tape to keep it steady.



And that's it!  Thanks for visiting.
